The Call to Conscience Network was established in early 1986 by the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) as an organizing tool that was used to develop awareness and action around the issues in Southern Africa and was stretched to all 50 states. The Call to Conscience Network was a national organization of over 250 anti-apartheid, religious, community, students, unions, elected officials and peace groups.
